The Supreme Court has ruled that the Trump administration’s executive order limiting immigration from terror-prone nations was constitutional. You lose again, liberals. Yet, for Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MI), the soon to be former deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee and candidate for Minnesota Attorney General, it was a dark day for the country, of course (via The Hill):
Today’s decision undermines the core value of religious tolerance on which America was founded. I am deeply disappointed that this ruling gives legitimacy to discrimination and Islamaphobia,” Ellison, who is one of the only two sitting Muslim members of Congress, said in a statement.
Ellison went on to compare the decision to the Korematsu decision in 1944 that allowed Japanese internment camps, as well as the Plessy v. Ferguson decision in 1896, upholding segregation laws in public facilities.
“Today’s ruling is unjust. Like the Korematsu decision that upheld Japanese internment camps or Plessy v. Ferguson that established ‘separate but equal,’ this decision will someday serve as a marker of shame,” Ellison said.
The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision to uphold Trump’s travel ban, saying the president has broad discretion to suspend the entry of aliens into the U.S.
The US Supreme Court just ratified Donald Trump’s “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entry into the United States.

Keith Ellison just melted down on @jaketapper's show when pressed about his relationship with Louis Farrakhan. He claims its false that they had any relationship. Here they are together a few years ago: https://t.co/9EcLQp86OI pic.twitter.com/NzvzjbOTCI
